Other Borrowers

Proxy Borrowers

Proxy borrowers for faculty are also eligible for interlibrary loan services, but faculty need to request that accounts be set up for their proxies.

Once accounts have been created, proxy borrowers can make requests through the standard login page using specially-created credentials.

Institutions outside of the University of Chicago

If your institution does not use OCLC, DOCLINE, or another ILL system, you can request items from ILL for a fee.
Please read our Lending policies and fees on the Interlibrary Loan department page.
